Ways to Practice Self-Care

How do you practice self-care? Sunday, July 24th is International Self-Care Day; self-care is about doing things for yourself to maintain your overall health and well-being.

It’s been a hectic year, so start today and use this day as a chance to reflect on your mind and body to make the rest of 2017 as healthy and successful as possible.

This year, I am 33 years old. My kids are self-sufficient to an extent and I am really shifting a big focus to my health. Since we are done having babies, Darasak and I have been on a journey since the beginning of the year to get back to a healthier lifestyle.

But, that isn’t always on the outside.

It is both inward and outward. So, if you’re looking to take care of yourself more this year and beyond, check out these ways to practice self-care.

Reflect on your goals

For many of us, we set resolutions in January, and while some of them last, they can often fall by the wayside come summer. A trick I like to use is writing goals in a journal weekly.

I do this to remind myself of my bigger year-long resolutions. That way, I’m reminded what I’m doing to achieve them on an ongoing basis. If you’re ever discouraged, don’t be afraid to ask your family and friends for help in achieving them!

Reflect on your health

With summer well underway, it’s important to reflect on your self-care routine for your body. Now might be the time to make sure you are scheduling all your regular screenings with your doctor.

Self-care routines are important year-round and it is crucial to wear sunscreen and follow other sun protection measures, like wearing long-sleeved shirts, pants, a hat and sunglasses, to protect your skin from cancer-causing UV rays.

When used as directed with other sun protection measures, Coppertone® ClearlySheer® SPF 50 Body Lotion and ClearlySheer® SPF 50 Face Lotion help protect your skin from invisible ultraviolet rays.

Even better they’re light and breathable, go on leaving a matte finish, and don’t close your pores! It’s important to wear your sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy because UV rays can still penetrate clouds!

On the other hand, when the sun is out, you are getting the full impact of UVA/UVB rays!

Reflect on your sleep schedule

Stress can cause all sorts of bad things, including a lack of sleep. To help clear your mind ahead of your bedtime, I suggest turning off all electronics at least an hour before you go to bed, and instead focus on some bedtime reading!

But if you find that your eyes are feeling a bit dry and sore, try out hydraSense® Eye Drops as a convenient lubricating solution with no preservatives to help relieve your symptoms.

Reflect on your nutrition

Lastly, a big part of self-care comes from nutrition. Up to 60 per cent of Canadians fall short in getting important nutrients from food alone.

To complement your diet, try One A Day® Gummies for daily nutritional support that has overall health needs in mind, like bone health*.
